My wife and I rode into Grand Forks on a motorcycle from Manitoba in July 2020. Upon checking a few motels in town we decided on the Imperial motel and ended up having a real pleasant experience. Rooms were clean comfortable and quiet. The young family from India managing the property were very friendly and accommodating.The young lady was cooking food in the kitchen which smelled delicious and even graciously offered us some to try. We couldnt have found a better place in Grand Forks and felt so welcomed. Totally awesome experience. Great people.

Dirty linen. Holes in towels. Manager rude and ignorant. Really spoiled what was otherwise a great visit. Got my group settled into another place ASAP but they won't forget this flea bag flop house any time soon

Place is maybe a 1 star. Falling apart, dirty. Booking.com send us here and they will hear back. Staying in our car might have been better. No wonder only four car add in lot. Got to be better in town.

We stayed at the Imperial Motel while working in Grand Forks. It was an absolutely poor choice on our part! The rooms and beds are below standards. When staying for 4 nights and I lost my key I was charged $5 for a replacement and the room was never cleaned for the duration. The towels are only changed when requested and there is no replacement toiletries unless requested. The cost was $100 a night which should have included these simple common courtesies.

got all booked in, and the manager paid. only to have the hindu play games and change his mind, and refuse us a room. based on the fact that our kids were running in the empty parking lot, and burning off steam. took our money, and wouldn't return it. avoid this METH addict flop house, go anywhere but motel 99 in grand forks. two worst run motels, i've ever had the displeasure of experiencing.

I rescind my previous review. My family and I decided to stop in Grand Forks as a stopover before heading to the USA. We arrived and the initial red flag was an empty parking lot. The owner was indifferent throughout the booking process and struggled to make eye contact. Our room, while consistent with smaller community motels, was rather drab (the photo caption is not an accurate reflection of 90% of the rooms). At about 9:00pm I overheard another couple make a comment to the owner regarding the mold found in their room. This quickly intensified to homophobic slurs and profanity by the hotel owner. The couple asked to leave because they "chose not to like the room". I later saw pictures taken by this couple - mold in every portion of the hotel, dirty unmade sheets and a massive buildup of dust around the washroom fan. The owner continued to swear and yell profanities while my children were trying to sleep. My experience does not appear to be isolated based on other reviews of this motel on other websites. Other reviews indicated the hotel changed ownership in the last year and sadly this was my experience. I intend to escalate my concerns further but please heed my warning...avoid!

We have stayed here several times through at least three owners. We thought it was getting better but our two nights stay recently made us rethink this assumption. The motel is deteriorating and upgrades that were done to the room we last stayed in had a definite DIY disaster feel. The sink backed up a couple of times - major plumbing issues are on the horizon. The furniture is battered and stained. The laminate floor (not a good idea for a motel) was poorly installed and showing considerable wear. Ventilation is poor. The beds were comfortable. I don't think we will be returning.

If all you need is a bed, this is the place for you. I have no idea where the room in the photo provided was taken, but it was not at this hotel. The bed won't be clean or comfortable, but it will be a bed. The room is dirty. The bed is dirty. The bathroom is full on standing water. The rooms are noisy and bright even at night; on the second floor, a red light shins through. When a transport tuck goes by, the entire building shakes. You will not get a good night's sleep here. Drive two more minutes and stay at the Ramada.

Staff were pleasant and the parking and location was good. However the rooms are very overpriced for an old and tired hotel. Our room was fairly clean but the pillows were paper thin and the bed was average at best. I would only consider staying here again if their prices were lowered to reflect the quality of stay.
